Ignorance is ignorance. There’s just no way of getting through to folks when it seems they lack commons sense. Gay men and women live among you, go to school with you, shower next to you in locker rooms across America every day and we can probably count on ONE hand how many reports of male-on-male or female-on-female rape occur every year at the hands of a gay person. Translation: Gay people have a pool of eligible, available and equally GAY individuals to interact with, date and be intimate with AND we are not uncontrollable sex-starved maniacs ready to attack every unsuspecting straight person in our day-to-day life. Which brings us back to the FEAR some straight individuals have of serving side-by-side with gay servicemen and women; stop fantasizing, we don’t want you. Throughout the years this argument has become more and more comical to me for ONE reason and one reason only: Why should I fight to be placed on the front lines and defend a bunch of ignorant asses that would sooner kill me themselves when we are on our home turf? Gay people of America, hear me and hear me well….LET THOSE HOMOPHOBIC MEN/WOMEN WHO AGREE WITH THE DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL POLICIES DIE FOR OUR GAY ASSES. GO AHEAD AND PRAY FOR THEIR SAFE RETURN TO AMERICAN SOIL AND RAISE YOUR GLASSES AT YOUR NEAREST GAY PUB TO THANK THEM FOR ALLOWING YOU TO BE FREE, SAFE AND SOUND. Go out and fight for rights that really do impact our day-to-day lives like marriage equality and the right to equal housing, jobs, etc. Yes, it’s wrong for anyone to discriminate against a group of Americans based on their sexual orientation, but sometimes you have to choose your battles and I say, LET IGNORANT STRAIGHT AMERICA FIGHT AND DIE TO PROTECT ALL AMERICANS – STRAIGHT AND GAY. There’s really no point in fighting for the right to die for our oppressors.
America is suppose to be the picture of freedom, diversity and opportunity for all. Throughout history we’ve proven to be as intolerant and prejudiced as some of our most primitive adversaries. Do you consciously choose to be part of the solution and impart open minded support for diversity and inclusion for all or do you find that you sometimes fall prey to intolerance for certain groups of people?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
